A dozen red roses, perfectly scented, handpicked and delivered to your door, Champagne on ice, served with juicy strawberries, who wouldn’t ask for more? The lady in the fiery red dress – every curve accentuated; You ask her name, she slowly leans over and whispers “call me Devon” With perfect manicure, 6-inch heels and shimmering red lips to match, you think to yourself, ‘man, I’ve died and gone to heaven!’ Salsa caliente! Two bodies moving as one, to the rhythm of the congas, and the beat of the drum! Oh the Passion, you forget that you’ve only just met; your hearts racing, as you break out in a sweat What’s the color of love? Some say, flaming hot RED!
6-foot plus, a six-pack to match, funny and charming too Cool, calm, and collected, and he’s got his eye on You the perfect gentleman, opens doors for you, and says “I’m sorry” when he’s wrong listens to every word you say, and girl, he even remembers your favorite song with a smile so warm it melts your heart, and you know you can’t say No to that voice, a beautiful baritone, saying “I just called to say hello” you’re the envy of your friends, they say he’s too good to be true It’s only been three dates, but in your heart you know, he’s the man for you! What’s the color of love? Others say, simply true BLUE!
What’s the color of love? That depends - what’s love to you? I know a Love, one that is true, a love that’s gentle and so mild It’s loyal and trusting, like the innocence of a child It’s patient and kind, not known for pride, malice or greed It’s pure in thought, in motive, in word and in deed Selflessly putting others first, it seems somewhat maternal But taking a closer look, you see it’s much more; called ‘Agape’ it’s eternal What’s the color of love? Some say Red, others Blue, there’s no need to fight It’s obvious to me, ask any bride and she’ll say, the colour of love is WHITE!
“But does love really have a color?” you ask.
Yes indeed! and I’ll show you, but I need you to first answer my questions: What’s the color of a starving family, getting a hot meal from a stranger? Of nakedness clothed in beauty, or being rescued from intense danger? What’s the colour of complete guilt deserving of judgement, instead receiving mercy and abundant grace; You’re dreading disdain, but receiving honour, you expect a cold shoulder, but get a warm embrace; Tell me the colour of a man laying down his life for another One that’s neither father, nor mother, not sister or brother Tell me that color, and then my friend, the color of love I need not name For THAT color and Love’s hue are one and the same!

#HappyValentinesDay to all the lovers worldwide! He who does not love, does not know God, for God is Love. - 1 John 4:19
